One of the first blogs I stumbled upon while initially searching was Dime Boxes - The Low-End Baseball Card Collector's Journey. It was the title that first struck me. I'm a sucker for a good bargain bin, so I figured this would be a good place to start reading. After reading a few of Nick's posts, I was hooked. A little while back, he wrote a post talking about new introductions. While he was suggesting that veteran bloggers reach out to some newbies by sharing some cards, I sent him an email to introduce myself, thank him for the greatly entertaining posts, and ask if he was up for a new trading partner(even though I was sans blog). It turns out that I had found myself pulling cards that seemed to fit his tastes as I was going through the expanses of my collection. He was game, and we set the gears in motion to create trade packages to send each other. Nick sent some really great cards, as many fellow bloggers already know. Here's a recap of the highlights.
LOT coming from a Yankee fan. Ultimately, my appreciation for the game and its history trumps my dislike for the BoSox. This is a rare occasion that I'm happy to add a Red Sox card to my collection.
Thanks to you Nick, for the inspiration, support, and kindness relating to my blogging endeavor and also for the great cardboard! I hope you enjoyed this trade as much as I did. Looking forward to many more!
